RE: Best Quality Travel Trailers

The problem is multi faceted Sizes and features that buyers are demanding, versus not only quality and cost, but also weight. If you want ease of towing, you want a light trailer, but light means less robust construction if you are to maintain a low price point. You could build a very solid light trailer, with a carbon composite and kevlar based shell over a titanium frame and get both light and solid, but at an astronomical price, or you can get a stick and tin shell on a slightly too light steel(?) frame with foam core laminated interior floors and have a cheap, light, trailer. And if you put a few glitzy items in with LED lights as accents, some schmuck will buy it. And there are a lot more schmucks out there with shallow pockets than there are discerning people with deep pockets. So,, they tend to build the most for what they percieve as "the masses"

RE: Elect. start generator.

I dont know of any , small, (2000 watt or less) that are electric start. For elec start generally will be 3000 watts plus, and weigh upwards of 100 lbs. Harbor freightHarbor freight is an example, and this is an inverter unit to provide stable power for most electronics. If you want a cheaper option, but not an inverter model, Amazon But my first thought would be to check with your insurer, is there a battery back up unit available for your O2 unit, will insurance cover it? If not, you may want to consider a battery and home charger, and then use an inverter to draw power from the battery. If you don't expect to need power for more than a few hours, a battery system may be cheaper and easier to work with.

RE: Power Sag/Current Issues at Seasonal Site

In addition to Valhallah's comment, solar to charge the batteries, allowing you to turn the converter off can provide some help. Otherwise, the Autoformer.

RE: New vehicle - MSRP?

Without getting too far into the weeds, are you a member of a group that could help? Costco Sams or some insurances like USAA offer buyers assistance. If you dont want to wade into it alone, one of these may help at least to give you an idea of a starting point.

This COULD end up causing a change of route for our November trip west.

RE: S.E. Pennsylvania to North Myrtle Beach

13 south to The Ches Bay Bridge Tunnel, Rt 13 to I 64 east to Chesapeake Va and then US 17 south. Scenic Non Interstate highway all the way down to Myrtle beach. Google directions Chincoteague Va to Myrtle Beach. directions either Rt 13 or Rt 17 from Chesapeake to Wilmington can be a nice drive, personally I prefer 17. So long as you are not going through Va Bch on a weekday rush hour time, it wont be that bad. Certainly better than getting around Philthy and Wilmington De. Is it large fifth wheel friendly route? I've driven all of it, but not in one trip with my A. Rt 13 from the Md line to the CBBT is a standard 4 lane divided highway, the CBBT is I believe 11' wide lanes with a 13'6" overhead clearance. Rt 13 to I-64 is again standard 4 or 6 lane divided highway, can be busy but just stay in the center/right lanes and you will be fine and basically a straight shot, no turns until you enter I 64, which will be via a right cloverleaf. Rt 17 in Chesapeake is 2 lane for about 16 miles in the Great dismal swamp, (May be all 4 lane now, been 20 years since I drove that part) once you hit NC all 4 lane divided and a nice easy drive. to Wilmington area.

RE: To buy a generator or not...

Your in Ca, are you experiencing blackouts/brownouts at home? You may want to consider the genny as "dual use" So you are covered there as well. If so, consider the 2500-4500 watt units so they offer more home flexibility.

RE: EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

Yes you can find some issues if you go looking for them. You can find even more boring success stories too but they don't make for exciting print. https://electrek.co/2020/06/30/tesla-model-3-police-cars-faster-roi-police-chief/ One thing I'm not sure of for police use is idle time sitting on the roadside running heat or AC. Either watching traffic, surveillance, or completing paperwork there is a lot of time spent in the vehicle, if the car is driven maybe 50% of the shift, and just sitting with the climate control running, will a single charge cover a full shift?

EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

I keep seeing articles like this LA buses 3/4 million dollar vehicles that dont/cant work. Other articles showing that in hilly areas, the brakes dont work in part from attempts to capture energy stopping function, other cities having problems too, Minnesota To invest big bucks into one as a personal vehicle , without the ability like these cities to bring back a retired Diesel to handle operation while the electrics are being continually repaired just seems crazy for all but the insanely wealthy.

Pa Turnpike

Going up to Altoona next week, first time up in years and taking the MH. I checked the website and everything was about automated fee collection systems. Can you still get a paper ticket and pay a person when you exit? Looking to exit at Bedford.

RE: september trip

Coming home from MB try the AF Camp at Fort Fisher, then up to Atlantic Beach then cross to go up to Swansboro and take the ferry to Ocracoke, ferry again a day or two later up to Hatteras, then Hatteras, Kill Devil Hills and up to Chesapeake. That region is beautiful and temperate in the fall. Ocracoke is quaint and not crowded after Labor Day, Hatteras is a little busier, KDH and the aerial activities from just visiting the Wright Brothers memorial, to hang gliding, parasailing and other similar activities at Kitty Hawk Kites can easily fill a couple days.
